Ralph W. Sockman (you really should google him) said, among MANY OTHER THINGS:
“The test of courage comes when we are in the minority. The test of tolerance comes when we are in the majority.”
I’m splitting this into two parts.
“The test of courage comes when we are in the minority.”
Now, most of my friends and I are in the minority at the moment, and it isn’t pretty. We need a little sustenance. So, let us turn back time and listen once again to Longfellow, who frankly was a good kid when he had it.
“Let us, then, be up and doing,
With a heart for any fate;
Still achieving, still pursuing,
Learn to labor and to wait.”
And to any of you Trump supporters who may still be (ma)lingering on my blog – this second part is for YOU.
The test of tolerance comes when we are in the majority.”
If you cannot do that –
Please don’t let the door hit you on your way OUT.
